Well, we are recovering from a fantastic time with lots of friends at the official launch of the Jules Bianchi Photography Bay Area Studio…. also, known as our real Jules Cafe!
Make sure you come back to the studio on Wednesday, October 28 at 7:30pm for our very first Jules Cafe in real time, our networking meeting for Photographers, sponsored by Pictage! The address is: 5772 Thornhill Drive, Oakland, CA 94611.
The party was a huge success, and so much fun. We want to thank our sponsors again for their generous donations and prizes. We gave away so much fun stuff my head is spinning. If you won a prize, we’d love to hear about it on twitter or Facebook, so give us a shout out and thank our sponsors.
In fact, to thank you all for coming, or just for checking out this post, here is another prize right now! Mark Adams of ShootQ has given the Promo Code JULESPARTY to give you a FREE MONTH of ShootQ when you book your first job via ShootQ’s Online Booking Engine. (This is in addition to the 30-day trial you automatically get when you sign up).
